The past few weeks Ross and I have waged a war on the weeds at the farm. There are so many established plants that are starting to bloom but finding them among the weeds has been a challenge. Luckily the soil is pretty weed-pulling friendly so it isn't too terrible. So far I have weeded the bed behind the house that hosts some beautiful hydrangeas and the coolest Jacobs Walking Stick tree I have ever seen and all around the buildings where the weeds were literally starting to climb up the walls. The previous owner left some wine barrel planters for us that I weeded and can't wait to plant...I just have to decide what I want to put in them.
I even made the goats pull their weight and put them to the task of removing the blackberry bushes by the silo. They LOVE to eat the leaves and they went right to work. It was the easiest weeding I have ever done, except keeping them in the area proved to be a bit of a challenge. Once they removed all the leaves it was easy to get in there with my pruners and cut them out.
